The classic Disney musical has since dawned one the most enjoyable words ever assembled and ushered in the era of animation-live-action mixed films. Opening in 1964 it will have been over 50 years since the film was released and rather than remake the film they are going to add to the mysterious babysitting, musical tune singing, character this time around.
Disney has proven to have no fear it going back to the well full of the hits they’ve had and adding to their stories or retelling them entirely, but with Julie Andews and Dick Van Dyke being almost 90 years old, you can’t imagine them continuing with the original cast, right?
Variety reported that Rob Marshall, director of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and the latest musical hit Into the Woods. Whether you are a fan of musicals or not, this is a reasonable choice as far as the property goes, but why a sequel so far along now.
The director for sure is a good choice, having worked on musical films in the past, but who knows how the project is going to turn out. The film is set to take place 20 years after the original sequences of events so stay turned for more news on the project.
